21 Day Meditation Blog: Day 1 Om Bhavam Namah

I'm doing Oprah & Deepak's 21 day meditation. I figured I'd give it a try. At first I was thinking I'm not so much an Oprah follower, but that's sort of irrelevant. When I heard her voice and thought about how much power she has in such a mainstream audience, I got it! How great that she and Deepak team up to bring meditation, new learning, a potentially mind opening and altering experience to anyone who wants to participate. This is good work!

Today I commit to perfect health. What does that mean to you? For me, it's much more than physical though the body's health can have a huge impact on how the mind and spirit feel.  If you're into knowing more about that, I'd recommend Carolyn Myss, especially Anatomy of the Spirit.

I'm getting into chanting more again after many years not thinking much about it. I used to go chant on Sunday nights in the mid 90s. Chanting is back in my world! I like the sanskrit Deepak is providing as part of the 21 days. It connects nicely with my renewed interest in chant.  Om namah shivaya! I wish you joy today.

If you're interested in the 21 day series fo here:

This is my new sacred space, and here I did the meditation today, laying on my egyptian pillows in front of the "closet". I'll write more about the space another time. It's a brand new work in progress I began on Saturday, so it will evolve.

Restorative Yoga Teacher Training just announced today!  The world needs you as a Restorative Yoga Teacher. This is where the inner work, the cleansing, the self acceptance, the surrender happens.
